RRR presents... ON A FALLING TIDE by Georgia Hill - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources for a stop along their current your featuring a work of Fiction with a fascinating dip into the past.  So, whether you're choosing to self-quarantine, or merely taking a break from your chaotic day, I invite you to check out today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...

On a Falling Tide
Georgia Hill

About the book..
Two women. Connected by heartbreak, separated in time. Can Charity save the man she loves, or will Lydia’s vengeful spirit prove too strong? 

Two haunting love stories and a hundred and fifty-year-old curse …

When the beloved grandfather who brought her up dies, Charity is left struggling to cope. Alone and rootless, she’s drawn to the sleepy fishing village of Beaumouth near Lyme Regis and begins to research her family tree. A chance encounter with attractive boat-builder Matt sparks a chain of mysterious and unsettling events and leads Charity to uncover the story of a young girl who lived in the village over a hundred years before. 

In 1863 all Lydia Pavey wants to do is follow in Mary Anning’s footsteps and become a ‘fossilist.’ Instead, she is being forced into marriage to a man she barely knows. 

Charity’s obsession with Lydia becomes all-consuming and she risks losing everything. With a longed-for family tantalisingly in reach, will Charity find the happy ever after she’s yearned for and, most importantly, can she save the man she loves?

Some stories you get drawn into by the characters, while others its the situations they find themselves in.  This story of love crosses time as the past steps into the present creating unforeseen obstacles that must be mounted in order to win the ultimate prize...each other's heart/forever.  Charity is up to the task, as is Matt, but Lydia certainly wants to have her say and isn't about to let go of whatever life she has left in her without a fight.  Can love conquer all?  You're about to find out...but, as I was saying, the thing about stories is that while each person reads the same collection of words, something different impacts them on an individual level.

For me, I found Lydia's past desire and Mary Anning's history most fascination. The role of a fossilist isn't generally a tackled field in most stories, let alone by women when it is even thought of, so the fact that we had one lady of note and another seeking that same path for her life was refreshing.  I mean, it may be studying the past, dusting about with old bones and whatnot, but it gives us a glimpse into a history we can only begin to imagine with some scientific groundwork to back it up, bringing conjecture into something for formidable, more solid, more REAL. 

All in all, a story filled with a variety of characters that will take past unfinished business into the here and now, and while presenting an unwanted challenge, it'll make the win (if achieved) all the sweeter.


About the author...

Georgia Hill writes best-selling romcoms and historical fiction with romance at the heart. Although she writes in two genres, they have more in common than you might think; she puts serious issues into her romcoms and lots of humour into her historical novels. She lives by the sea in the south west of England with her two beloved dogs - a spaniel and a delinquent cockapoo puppy, her husband (also beloved and not at all delinquent) and a ghost called Zoe. She loves Jane Austen, elephants, Belgian chocolate (all donations gratefully received) and Strictly Come Dancing. Her stories come from everywhere and anything, so be careful what you tell her as you may end up in a book. She also finds inspiration in the folklore and history of the many places in which she’s lived. To put it politely, she’s had a portfolio career having worked in the theatre, for a charity and as a teacher and educational consultant before giving in and finally acknowledging that making up things was what she really wanted to do. She has a nasty addiction to moving house but is trying to overcome this. After one house move too many, she lost all her notebooks and decided to stop talking about writing and actually do some. She’s been happily creating believably flawed heroines, intriguing men and page-turning stories ever since.
